Fresno Unified School officials say a young man who is not a student at Fresno High Scholl jumped over the fence to get on campus-- soon they discovered he was carrying a loaded weapon. A U.S. History teacher says he helped tackle the young man. After he was in custody officers found a loaded 25 caliber semi automatic handgun.

Bob Hoe says his students told him there were people on campus who were not students-- he says he went to the principal, who then placed the school on lockdown.

Hoe said, "I'd like to take full credit for it but I only did what I hope any teacher would do at Fresno High is intervene and I'd like to credit the student body for having enough trust in us to come to us to keep them safe."

Fresno Police say the young man with the gun was a juvenile and has been booked into Juvenile Hall.
